Brisebois makes $750K this season. If you are talking about the bonuses.. then if Breezer meets them, obviously he will have had a good season, unlike what Cote could of done, so what's the problem?

The bonus system for a player like Brisebois is a win-win. I don't know why people are complaining about it..
The thing is though the bonus counts against the cap... thats the only downside.

However I'm much more comfortable with the veteran breezy as our number 7... he knows his role, and he still plays good as along as he isn't used too much.

because he clearly wasn't good enough.

Just saying a non-negative cameo by a callup seems to frequently generate fan expectations for a player that doesn't necessarily match what that player has shown over the longer haul at other levels. I've always thought that Cote got more attention for his little stint than he deserved, just as Stewart got a bit more for his 1 game last year than he deserved too. Good on them both for what they did, of course.
Then we agree. But for some reason I wasn't overly impressed when he was called up.
